I have a View, in a block, assigned to a region. I have enabled Ajax for the view. Pagination works with Ajax. Exposed filters do not. Exposed filters "submit".
I am definitely willing to cut corners at this point, so if there's a method that can be done with a simple JS function I will do that.
I believe that the problem is related to using the exposed form as a block. When "exposed form in block" is set to "no" ajax filtering does work.
update/solved: I disable "exposed form in block" which I was using to change the position the filters. I then edited the view's template to get the position where I wanted it. so this is "solved" but I am not sure why it didn't work before.
